From farm country I understand the meaning of the sentence, but your reaction is priceless. Often heard 'side of beef', that's half a cow.

Not unusual in farm families, who would get an animal slaughtered. Although my Danish family usually has it's own pigs. The butcher would come (comes?) to the farm with his butcher truck. Now some people get a 'halv gris/ko) nicely cut up in labeled packages. I remember helping my svigerinde package 'hakket svinekød' (fars) from one of their pigs.

Obviously you've never lived on a farm!

No, but if I did, I would certainly keep my fridge clean from carrions... Just my thought!

Why would anyone have a whole cow in in a freezer

    Clearly not a city dweller with a well-paying job and long hours...
